How to stop the drug wars

From The Economist

Straight talk and sensible... but I think, as a nation, we're addicted to the Drug Wars themselves. How else do you explain the popularity of the"Cops" TV show? Throwing those evil addicts into the slammer is such a studly thing to do! Don't even think about education as a possible way of slowing drug use; we've never tried it and we never will! Besides, we have a fortune tied up in new cop toys that are fun to use.
